Costa's Hummingbird

A Costa’s Hummingbird frustratingly not turning it’s head long enough for me to get a shot of the purple gorget! The Anna’s just seem so much more comfortable with me around than the others and I guess I’ve gotten spoiled… but I’ve been wanting to get shots of other hummingbird species but they aren’t cooperating lately.


Costa's Hummingbird Watercolor

This little hummer looks like he’s chuckling to me. I’ve been really inspired by my Chinese Brush Painting class. I’ve been trying to incorporate the minimal feeling of Chinese Brush Painting while also keeping it within the Western tradition of watercolor. Hope you like it!
